Healthmark Industries has announced that they are now offering a product called
“BactiQuik." It is a new prepackaged 1 ML vial of microbial suspensions that can be
quickly and easily mixed with “Artificial Test Soil” (ATS) to perform validation testing
for disinfection and sterilization. The vials that they come in contain a pure population of approximately 1x108 CFU/ML. They are offered individually by either viable
Geobacillus stearothermophilus or Bacillus atrophaeus. G. stearothermophilus has a
known resistance for steam sterilization, and B. atrophaeus for ethylene oxide and dry
heat sterilizations. When mixed with ATS or other simulated-use test soils, your reprocessing instructions from cleaning through sterilization can be validated.

Ecolab Healthcare is announcing the availability of Genesys surgical drapes and waste bags
made of a material that promotes quicker breakdown in biologically active landfills. When in
use, the products help maintain a sterile field in
operating rooms. Then, when disposed of, they
breakdown up to 35 percent in just 21 months.
In a blind survey of 200 hospital decision-makers, 70 percent indicate that sustainability
concerns are changing the way they purchase
products and 79 percent believe that materials
that breakdown quicker in landfills are aligned
with their sustainability policies.
